Federer backs Hingis
Federer backs Hingis in dope saga.
A shocked Federer who has idolised Hingis in his young years as a player said, "When I heard the news, it gave me a shock. I don't quite understand why at this time she has chosen to reveal this and end her career, because it is a huge career which is being stopped here. I know that I would have acted differently."
He also added, "I haven't forgotten that it was with her, at Hopman Cup, that I won the first title of my career. I really hope she can prove her innocence. I am behind her. I could never imagine that she was doping in one way or another."
